Funding News and Grant Tips

The Funding Information Center is Moving Next Week!
The Library and Information Services Program, which includes the Funding Information Center (FIC), is moving to the sixth floor of the Moreton Building next week.
We will be closed from Monday, July 14 until Thursday, July 17 in order to complete the move. The Funding Alert for that week will be sent out early.
The newly renovated Moreton Building is located at the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Central Campus in Austin at the corner of 49th Street and Grover.
The Funding Information Center will continue to offer all of the services you have known — library services, grant research, and the weekly Funding Alert — in the new location.
The FIC’s telephone numbers and email addresses will remain the same. If you have any questions, please contact Doug Jumper at doug.jumper@dshs.state.tx.us, (512) 776-7684.

Two Methods for Attracting Top Board Members for Today, Tomorrow
As a long-term board development strategy, forward-thinking nonprofit organizations are looking for ways to court today’s “young professionals.” According to the online Urban Dictionary, a young professional is a recent college graduate whose main objectives in life include: career advancement, becoming financially secure, spending too much of their yearly income on expensive clothing, and maintaining a busy social life.
Although this seems a bit cynical, many nonprofits have fallen into the trap of assuming that hosting Happy Hours at trendy bars where so-called young professionals could network with one another would be enough to win new friends for their agencies. They missed one key part of the definition: these individuals already have busy social lives.  There needs to be a very good reason for them to add another commitment to their calendars. Nonprofits that have been successful in this area have built their recruiting efforts around three important criteria: (1) keep all group activities tied in some way to the nonprofit’s mission; (2) include opportunities to “network up” by providing access to existing board members and other important agency contacts; and (3) allow the group as much autonomy as possible.
One organization that has developed an extremely successful Young Professionals Program (YPP) is Boys and Girls Country of Houston, Inc. (BGC). BGC is a residential home for children from families in crisis, where they are raised in a loving, Christian setting to grow into independent, self-sustaining adults. BGC chose to structure their Young Professionals Group as a Giving Circle. In lieu of paying a membership fee, members make donations to the group’s fund. A small committee, empowered by BGC to lead the group, began this year with a full-day retreat. Addresses were given by the incoming board chairman and a local philanthropist, and BGC staff members gave PowerPoint presentations on the organization’s culture of philanthropy and Fundraising 101. To tie in with its mission, staff members who live on campus spoke about what they do on a daily basis.
The YPG’s by-laws have since been finalized and a fundraising goal has been set for the year. At next year’s annual meeting, the committee will vote on which budget item they would like to support with their 2014 gift, i.e. education, housing, etc. A calendar of events to be attended by a BGC Board Member or other high-level executive, as well as volunteer activities with BGC kids, is now in place. The committee has already made its first report to BGC’s board of directors, and plans to do so at future board meetings as well.
This is an excellent strategy for developing future board members. However, for nonprofits that are looking to fill spaces on their boards immediately, LinkedIn Board Connect can be an extremely effective resource. Business professionals on LinkedIn may express their desire to be on a nonprofit board in their profile under “Volunteer Experience & Causes.” By indicating that your nonprofit is looking for potential board members, you will be connected with individuals who are interested in your organization, or ones that have a similar mission.
To maintain a vibrant and active board, board development should be ongoing. A combination of the two strategies above could help meet both your organization’s short- and long-term needs.

Innovative Assays to Quantify the Latent HIV Reservoir (R01): RFA-AI-14-020
SOURCE: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Letter of Intent: 10/7/14. Application: 11/7/14.
$ AVAILABLE: NIAID intends to commit $1.3 million in FY 2015 to fund two to four awards.
ELIGIBILITY: Public/state/private controlled institutions of higher education, nonprofits with and without 501(c)(3) IRS status (other than institutions of higher education), small businesses, for-profit organizations (other than small businesses), state governments, U.S. territories or possessions, Indian/Native American tribal government (federally recognized and other than federally recognized), Indian/Native American tribally designated organizations, non-domestic (non-U.S.) entities, Hispanic-serving institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs), Alaska native and native Hawaiian serving institutions, regional organizations, eligible agencies of the federal government, and faith-based or community-based organizations.
PURPOSE: The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research on new or improved methods for quantifying latently infected cells in HIV-positive individuals on effective antiretroviral therapy. Quantifying latent HIV reservoirs is critical to evaluating strategies to cure HIV infection in vivo. The current gold-standard method involves a limiting dilution viral outgrowth assay that is slow, resource-intensive, and relatively imprecise. A molecular assay to accurately detect replication-competent provirus, or a viral outgrowth assay with improved efficiency, would facilitate proof-of-concept studies for curing HIV infection.
